This distance is the difference 3 - ( -4), obtained by subtracting the smaller coordinate from the larger. However, since 0 3 - ( -4) 0 = 0 7 0 = 7 and 0 -4 - 3 0 = 0 -7 0 = 7, we can use absolute value to calculate the distance between two points without being concerned about which is smaller. DEFINITION If P and Q are two points on a real number line with coordinates a and b, respectively, the distance between P and Q, denoted by d(P, Q), is d(P, Q) = 0 b - a 0 Since 0 b - a 0 = 0 a - b 0 , it follows that d(P, Q) = d(Q, P).
